Thousands gather at Denver's City Center Park for a rally in support of the Muslim community and to protest President Donald Trump's executive order to temporarily ban refugees from seven mostly Muslim countries.

Thousands of people gathered at Denver's Civic Center Park carried signs, heard speeches, sang and chanted during a rally in support of the Muslim community.

One of the speakers was 17-year-old Zahra Abdulameer who came to the United States as a refugee from Iraq and is now a U.S. citizen. She says she has been welcomed and treated with respect and been able to receive an education.

Still, Abdulameer says she fears things could change with President Donald Trump's refugee and immigration ban. A federal judge blocked the ban on Friday.
